I was once asked at a job interview .
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2018:
They probably want some bs like "I'm not good at going home when it's time to clock off" or "I'm not good at putting my family first".
It's like...
brentan comments on Oct 13, 2018:
Go easy on them - they're just misunderstood.

Diverticulitis inflammation or infection in one or more small pouches in the digestive tract.

I can't imagine what it's like. I hope all goes well and you're better real fast!
This is a brilliant statement by a lucid mind: Stephen Fry on political correctness.

Stephen at his best, arguing for common decency.
PARVENU.

JFC, I need to cut the FB cord.
brentan comments on Oct 12, 2018:
The second one harks back to the answer Jesus gave his disciples when they asked how they might know the end is coming. It's in Matthew 24. It was used a lot by JWs to prove this is the end times. The curious thing about is that when Jesus lists off all the lousy things that will happen, he says that those are not the signs of the end. He says these things are a matter of course. Then he goes on to say what will be the sign of the end.
Truth as such has no value in itself.
brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
Truth is general and personal. I don't think it's fair to say it is no more than knowledge. Where knowledge is concerned, we could call truth true knowledge. But it is also honesty. Speaking truth means representing the world as best we know it. Not speaking truth warps the reality of life and leads people into a form of hell. We can't say truth is overrated. It is probably hugely underrated in our cowardly attempts to advance our personal goals by false representation, ignoring the damage to other people and ourselves.
Any ideas on what is wrong with Kanye West?

brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
Neil Young wrote a great song called Cortez The Killer which idealised the way of life of the native people in South America. I'm sure the lyrics were nonsense. The indigenous people were just as bad on a lower tech level. It's time to be objective about our species - we are all the same. I would say stop apologising. That's how it was. That's pretty much how it still is. I hope we can change.

Ok
New here. How do posts work? What do people post about?
brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
Hello and welcome. People post about everything, sometimes even in the right sections. You'll get the hang of it real quick.
"Jimi Hendrix, Experience." 1969. (poster)
brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
I'm really glad I never experienced what Jimi did.
The so called New World. Indigenous Peoples. Standing Rock. The Lakota. Tribes.
brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
Might is right. They were so brainwashed about religion hundreds of years ago but it hasn't stopped yet. I once read that the powers that be in America assume that they have tacit approval from the people to do anything necessary to keep their standard of living going. They haven't actually asked them (I think) but take it as an unwritten agreement.

Unemployment, systemic racism, polarised ideologies. I think Trump is correct about one thing, that good employment statistics would reduce the intensity of these issues if it could be achieved.

brentan comments on Oct 11, 2018:
I think America was a melting pot of cultures bringing their linguistic idiosyncrasies to the table. Webster may well have been trying to reduce those differences to a minimum while also doing his very best to use specific words for different things, such as holidays and vacation.

I thought money laundering is when you wash your clothes and forget money in pockets.

Good one. I did it recently with a €10 note which happily survived the ordeal.
New sex scandal.
brentan comments on Oct 10, 2018:
I'm so pleased to see penalties imposed that will make these organisations re-think their policies. I had read years ago that that the Watchtower HQ had the names of thousands of abusers in their files but refused to hand them over. Their two witness rule should not subvert secular justice. If the law demands that sexual accusations belong in the criminal justice system, the police would have the files without depending on the goodwill (demonstrated to be nil) of religious organisations.
Socialism Destroys by John Stossel [townhall.com]

Socialism, social democracy, South American and European varieties - that article is all over the place trying to make a point.

brentan comments on Oct 10, 2018:
I'm certain she is anything but stupid. She has, to my horror, defended her views very strongly and with competence. I can't say anything about her sincerity. Lots of intelligent people have views that I can't relate to at all.
Believers. I've noticed a few people state that they are believers in their profiles. Why come here?
brentan comments on Oct 10, 2018:
Let's hope it's curiosity or perhaps the beginning of a move away from religion.

[friendlyatheist.patheos.com] CatholicMoms Defend Kavanaugh- It Can Happen To Our Sons Ad-WTF!!!
brentan comments on Oct 10, 2018:
Being raised a Catholic, I think it's fair to say that in general, no training is given to children about living a virtuous life. In my day, the subject was never discussed. Our perception of the relationship between the sexes was that women protected their virginity at all costs so it was the business of a man to find a way past the obstructions.

I have just seen a film called Apostasy which is directed by an xjw.
brentan comments on Oct 9, 2018:
I saw it too. I was very pleased with the effort they put in to describe the JW life. I'm sure it must be very difficult for 'normal' people to grasp the awful truth of the religion as a way of life. The actress who played the believing mum was terrific, while not taking away from the professionalism of everyone involved.
POIGNANT: poign-ant.
brentan comments on Oct 9, 2018:
It was a poignant moment when the actor forgot his lines, perhaps more for the audience than the actor himself.
Narcissistic Sociopath Symptoms
brentan comments on Oct 9, 2018:
I think many Christians think all these people die because they can't call on God for help because they don't believe in the Christian God, or if they do, they call on the wrong interpretation of the Christian god. If you don't fall into those categories 'time and unforeseen occurrence fall them all' (Ecclesiastes 9:11) so it's just bad luck.
This really isn't offensive to any of us, but probably is to believers.
brentan comments on Oct 9, 2018:
What a great story documenting the mind of man trying to understand a world they know so very little about. It's well worth a read.
LOQUACIOUS - Adjective.

True Revolution [caitlinjohnstone.
brentan comments on Oct 8, 2018:
Tolle offers a calm place in a storm. I enjoy his teachings. The question is how to get the balance right in a world demanding you fit in so as get your basic human needs. It's an even tougher question when you have a family. The Christian proposal to solve that problem was to 'seek God's Kingdom first and then all other things will be added to you'. I don't think that claim has ever been shown to be true. So caution is needed if a person decides to prioritise their spiritual dimension. I think it is worth the effort but living an alternative life has to come at a cost.

OPPROBRIUM - harsh criticism or censure; the public disgrace arising from one’s shameful conduct.
brentan comments on Oct 7, 2018:
Carrying guilt is bad but it's private. Carrying shame is worse because it's public. Forgiveness, though, is always an option.

brentan comments on Oct 6, 2018:
Shakespeare and Cervantes lived during the same period - mid 1500s to early 1600s. The old feudal values were dying and Cerantes captured it so well in this story of a man who wouldn't move on. Shakespeare captured it in the earl of Essex in Richard II and his opposite in Henry IV, Falstaff the man with no honour. Wonderful song!

I dealt with the same situation and now deal with the fallout. As far as I can tell, the suspicious mind can't allow for the bisexual to have any honour, integrity or other values that heterosexuals are credited with free gratis. I can't give an answer to a young person because simple old age put me in a position where I can afford not to care about other people's opinions anymore. I wish you well and hop you find the person you deserve.
Love ... relationships ... family
brentan comments on Oct 6, 2018:
I tend to judge moral issues by going back to cave-dwelling times and asking what habits were developed to ensure the success of a tribe. I think successful habits were later converted to morals and linked to approval by the gods and then a ticket to heaven. We don't have to go far back in history to see polygamy justified as a way to help a tribe survive. It would be interesting to know if our modern societies could survive the total breakdown of the old habits.

brentan comments on Oct 6, 2018:

brentan comments on Oct 5, 2018:
I'm guessing you're dealing with the condemnation of the fundies versus the decency of the liberal notion of Christianity. And in all fairness, the liberal notion ignores some very restrictive rules about sex. I don't know what it's like living in Texas, or how attached to Christianity you are in your heart, but in my ignorance I can't help concluding that homosexuality and Christianity make poor bedfellows and atheism with humanist values (which are similar in many ways) would be the best move in the long run.
I find it to be interesting, from a psychological standpoint, that the people who get the most upset...
brentan comments on Oct 5, 2018:
I can’t help concluding that we’re teasing out when to play it carefully and when to start the revolution. History seems to show that no liberties are given without a fight. There are other factors to consider too. Ghandi proved the effectiveness of peaceful non-cooperation and MLK followed suit. Then we need to consider whether white men really are being victimised at all. Or women. Or black people, Jews, Muslims, the handicapped, transgender – the list is endless. As an Irishman, I’m particularly incensed at the treatment of the Irish globally and I am actively involved in starting a revolution from my barstool. But seriously, should we discuss whether white men really have a grievance in our comfortable Western world?

i think it needs a decent IQ to start with and then education - the sort that teaches you to think and then articulate what you think. And then you need the will to reach another person and not just defeat them where differences come up.
